Free seminar held in Auburn Hills conducted by Probate Court, Oct. 24

On Monday, Oct. 24, the Citizens Alliance for the Oakland County Probate and Circuit Courts will be conducting a free seminar called Removing the Mysteries of Probate Court in conjunction with the City of Auburn Hills Senior Services Department at the Auburn Hills Community Center, 1827 N. Squirrel Road, Auburn Hills, from 1 to 3 p.m.  This program is designed to enlighten and educate senior citizens and their families so that they may make informed decisions regarding their estate planning and understand the probate process.

The seminar will include topics such as wills, trusts, and powers of attorney, and provides useful information on how to begin probate proceedings, when to consider use of guardianships and conservatorships, and how “avoiding probate” could cause more harm than good.

Panelists will include Jill Koney Daly, probate register for the Oakland County Probate Court, and attorney Robert Isgrigg Jr. from Schmidt, Isgrigg, Andersonn & Miller in Waterford.  Materials will be available and adequate time will be available for questions.
